I don't have FS9 so I cant check but out of interest does it lock up just when your in bad weather or is it completely random? If you have a 3D accelerator graphics card check in the FS9 menu to make sure you taking full advantage of your card. If you havn't already download the latest Direct X drivers from Microsoft website.

i think ive fixed the freeze, lock up problem i was having with fs9 ,

in my ATI tools tray>hardware>smartgart. i changed the AGP speed from x8 to x4 .

ive just done a 2 hour test flight over EGYPT with no lock up and no performance drop . so what have i actually done by decreasing the AGP speed fom x8 to x4 .
